Memories Jibacoa is a cheerful adult-only all-inclusive in a natural forest setting with a glorious beach and many activities and varieties of entertainment.
This all-inclusive resort is located on Arroyo Bermejo Beach, with a backdrop of forested hills. It has 250 bright and airy guest rooms in 18 two-storey blocks, with balcony or terrace, one king-size bed or two single beds, air-con, private bathroom and cable TV. It's an adults-only place, but that doesn't mean you are left to your own devices: there is a mind-bogglingly huge range of activities and entertainment from water-sports to salsa and Spanish classes, from yoga to piano bars, dance troupes, aqua-ballet and more.
There's a huge outdoor pool with loungers fully equipped gym, tennis courts with tuition, golf, table tennis - the list goes on. The four restaurants include a buffet, an à la carte restaurant and a beach grill, all very informal and if you are just after a drink you can choose between five bars. But this isn't a huge hotel complex with tower blocks: the design is low-rise, and the staff are consistency praised for their welcome and willingness to help.
What our clients say
Highlights?: There were so many! We took an excursion to the forest ; truck, walk, waterfall swimming...loved it. But we really enjoyed everywhere.ER, London
Highlights: Meeting the local guides and owners of casas particolares, who were unfailingly helpful, friendly and genuinely keen to welcome us to their country. On of the highlights of the trip was probably the transfer in a wonderful red and cream American classic car with a skilful driver (you have to be on Cuban roads!)RP, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Too hard! Havana itself? The beautiful sea up north? The beautiful countryside? Meeting Cuban people and glimpsing a bit of a remarkable country in the midst of some change... Too hard!JL, Leeds
The live music in all the bars, restaurants and on street corners everywhere. We loved the variety of Havana , vinales, Trinidad and the flop on the beach at the end at Cayo Santa Maria.LD, Beaconsfield

Sophie Barber - Travel Expert
Sophie lived in Chile before joining us and has travelled extensively across Latin America, from Mexico to the furthest tip of Patagonia and beyond to Antarctica.
The perfect place to kick back and relax after my tour of Cuba. I thought the beach was stunning and found it hard to drag myself away from the beach and swimming in the clear azure ocean but the hotel has so many things to do. There's a dive centre where you can learn to dive as well as rent snorkelling equipment and kayaks. The snorkelling was great as the hotel has its own naturally formed coral reef.
